Trimble and HP Collaborate to Explore the Use of Robotic Technology for Autonomous Indoor Construction Layout


The announcement was made at the Trimble Dimensions+ Conference, where HP and Trimble are demonstrating the technology.

The construction industry faces a variety of challenges including the shortage of skilled workers and productivity. HP and Trimble can address these

challenges with an integration of HP SitePrint and the recently introduced Trimble® Ri total station. The integrated solution can deliver an autonomous

layout workflow that empowers efficiency and productivity on the job, while delivering layouts faster than traditional methods. Augmenting the

contractors' work, SitePrint can avoid obstacles and print lines and complex objects with pinpoint accuracy and consistent repeatability. In addition,

text printing capabilities bring additional data from the digital model to the construction site to prevent errors.

Using optical technology, the precise positioning and navigation of HP SitePrint robot is driven by the Trimble Ri total station. Equipped with automatic

level detection, self-calibration, and Trimble VISION™ technology for advanced tracking, the Trimble Ri enables the HP SitePrint robot to achieve

autonomous, high-accuracy indoor layout work.

"The integration of Trimble Ri and HP SitePrint can transform the layout process on complex construction sites with pinpoint accuracy, and in a fraction

of the time," said Aviad Almagor, vice president of Technology Innovation, Trimble. "This is an opportunity for layout contractors to improve accuracy

and productivity and handle more projects with the same size of team."

"Technology adoption and increased digitization can help construction firms bridge this productivity gap," said Daniel Martínez, vice president and

general manager, HP Large Format Printing. "HP has played a key role in bridging digital and physical worlds with print solutions for architects and

engineers over the last thirty years. With the integration between HP SitePrint and Trimble Ri, we can make it easier than ever for layout professionals

to bring an idea to life on site, while also enabling increased digitization of the construction industry as a whole."
